    Picked a group from a wedding. The wedding was over and everything was getting cleares out. Loaded up my car with cases of soda and after I dropped them off, left me with 2 cases of coke bottles.

    Well... i've been doing this long enough i have a list...

    A honey baked ham (fresh from the store)

    A walmart bag full of assorted sealed drinks (some alcoholic some non alcoholic, it was cleaning out the vacation houses fridge of stuff they couldn't stick on an airplane)

    A darden gift card (Olive garden + other restaurants)

    A plate of fresh baked brownies

    A 20 pound bag of raw shrimp (that was 1 day from expiring, you can't serve this to customers, but i can freeze it and use it)

    A coupon for a free couples massage

    Invited to eat at a backyard barbecue I just dropped folks off at (this has happened more than a few times)

    A 2 foot artificial Christmas tree (tourists bought it so they could have a Christmas tree on Christmas day and then they gave it to me on the way to the airport)

    A rubber band ball the size of a basketball


    A Picture with
    Vin Diesel (plus a signed credit card receipt with his real name)
    Larry the Cable Guy (He paid cash)
    This one NBA basketball player... I have no idea who it was but he was filthy loaded and tipped $100 cash.

    Hilarious! I think your list will simply be the measure against how we measure ourselves. 20# of raw shrimp? Good sweet Jesus on a stick.... that beats anything!

    Not my biggest tip but certainly my favorite is a Sonic drink chip. I looks like a casino chip but you can turn it in for a cherry limeade. I keep it with my challenge coins at home. I cant articulate why I think its so cool but LOL it's special to me.

    I got a 20 dollar tip a couple weeks ago, for a 2 mile drive. And she came back to my car after I dropped her off. Was really nice.

    One guy offered me "hey you want to do a bump of coke? I'll give you a bump as a tip".
    me: no thanks.
    him: "you sure?"

    another guy offered me a BJ.
    me: get the hell out!

    and a girl that puked out the window gave me a free car wash coupon. she felt very bad about it and it really wasn't bad. it was time to wash my car anyhow so not a big deal if I would have had to pay for it.

    I got 2 $20 gift cards to a high end restaurant once. My bill was still over $180 after the gift card. I never saw such an empty plate for so much money before.

    Reading comprehension is not some folks strong suit. He says interesting tips, meaning non cash.

    I was offered Coke this weekend. Not the Soda variety....

    ...I was a little upset that he'd bring that with him in my car, but it's probably not the first... just the first time a Pax was so brazen about it.

    I just helped a guy move from one hotel to another because the first one sucked. Turns out he's "living in" the hotel until he gets his house next week. Just moved here to be the general manager at our new BJ's. He, of course, didn't have any cash. So he wrote on his card that I get 2 meals with 2 non-alcohol drinks. So that means that my "tip" might be worth upwards of $30 making it my biggest tip ever.

    Alas, I'm on a diet.

    I "once" received a $100.00 tip from a male pax (intoxicated) from Tempe to Cavecreek who was dealing with a difficult relationship at home. When we arrived at destination he asked if I could break $100.00 bill and I said sir if I could make change for $100.00 I would not be driving for duber. He said to wait, came back outside and handed the $100. to me.
    Knowing that he was hammered I told him if he knew he was giving $100. not $10. To which he replied yes for two reasons, that I let him vent and I told him don't ever take advice regarding the female species, in the end they are going kill all things male.

    I agree, it's the riders ride and your car. I got a few bucks from riders that smoke, just because I let them light up. Plus, if you are stern and say NO, you will receive a one star sure as hell.
